Re: Seeahill: once more into the fray

I will accept the challenge. Thank you for that very generous bit of motivation. I started my program on March 1 at weighing in at 243.8. My goal was 215, a pretty good walking around weight for me. But I'll take my goal weight to 210. That's a loss of almost 34 pounds. So that's 34 weeks which is j...

Gene, Your blood work looks great. You've been doing Keto for 7 years or so. Doesn't look it has hurt you any.

Re: Seeahill: once more into the fray

Thanks for the encouragement.

I'll swim this summer for a few months when our outdoor pool is open. And when the river warms up.

I don't anyone who does taichi, but I'll look around.

Seeahill: once more into the fray

So, about a year and a half ago I undertook a new Himalayan trek. I was 75, but I felt I could do it. 5 years earlier I walked to Everest Base Camp, then trudged up a nearby peak, 18,500 feet. But at 75 the more recent trek beat me like a gong. I'm used to walking with people decades younger, but th...

Re: Wilder Fury 2

Turns out Fury cheated and didn't have his hands all the way in his gloves. It wasn't the godawful heavy costume Wilder wore on the ring walk after all.

No comments? I used to come here for a certain degree of informed analysis. Is your lack of interest because MMS now defines the baddest man on the planet? Or boxing is boring? Seriously, Fury has got to be the best fight story in all combat sports. And there's no comment here. Explain that to me pl...

smart computer guys, question

I'll be doing a lot of traveling out of country in the next year. Do I need a VPN? My central concern is that I have my bank and brokerage on the phone. Will a good VPN provide a level of safety?

If so, what's a good one. I'm looking at NordVPN and ExpressVPN.

Re: Instant Pot

I agree with all above. It's a slow cooker, but not a good one. it's a rice maker, but I hate the way it makes rice. It's best a pressure cooker. Great for winter comfort foods: soups, stews, beans. Probably not an issue in Hawaii. But there are some things it does great and they are things you migh...

Re: Right now I'm drinking

Right now I'm drinking Monkey Shoulder. It's a scotch running about $32 a bottle. It's a blend but a blend of three different single malts. Blended Scotch can contain up to 49% grain spirits and it's rare to have a blend made up of 100% malted whiskys. The three single malts are Glenfiddich, The Bal...

Re: Cookbooks

FC, thanks. I found my late wife's copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking. You're right. 30 years ago, I thought it was fussy and time consuming. Now I see the value in it. A little bittersweet looking at it, though. I see the recipes she checked off, her notes, the pages she dog eared. There a...

I have a couple of shelves of cookbooks I've purchased over the years under the absurd assumption that simply owning the book will make me a better cook. It's time for me to buy one book that's heavy on technique and work my way through it. It looks like the newer version of Pepin's La Technique is ...
